Change Comes Again To The Corral

Change is inevitable, I’m sad to say. People come and go but, on the bright side, it keeps us from becoming stale. We’re heartbroken to announce that Tracy Garrett will post her goodbye blog on January 29th. Tracy has been a member of our little family for a very long time. It’s an understatement that we’ll miss her. But we never want to hold her back. She’s going to be doing some exciting things and publishing more fantastic books. We wish her all the luck and success in the world and we know you do too. Give her a howdy and wave real big when you meet her on the trail. She’ll like that.


Joining us is an awesome lady and very talented writer. Trish Milburn spent a good many years living in Kentucky and Tennessee but now makes her home in Florida where she never hopes to see another snowflake again. She wrote her first novel in the 6th grade for a class project. I don’t know about you, but I’m awfully impressed. She’s published in multi-genres but currently writes modern cowboy stories for Harlequin American Romance. Trish does love her cowboys so she’ll fit in here like a Colt in a gunslinger’s holster! Yee-haw! Her latest book is The Cowboy Takes a Wife (part of her successful Blue Falls, Texas series.) Her first post will be on Monday, January 30, 2017. Help us roll out the welcome mat and show her some good old hospitality.

Come and give Tracy a big send-off on the 29th and a hearty welcome to Trish on the 30th. You’re welcome to bring a cake. The Fillies are always ready to eat! I might break out some of my special cider. 🙂
